Audubon Bird walk at Peña Blanca
By Signe Hammer
This month, Audubon’s bird walk will head to Peña Blanca, a few miles past the Presa Allende, where a tree-lined stream and open farmland provide habitat for a wide variety of songbirds and raptors. With leaders Norman Besman, Bob Graham, Luke Rich, Mike Wheatcroft and Signe Hammer we’ll look for recently arrived winter migrants such as Lincoln’s Sparrows and Yellow-rumped Warblers, as well as locals such as Blue Grosbeaks, Great Kiskadees, Crested Caracaras and American Kestrels.
